Honda CR-V is now available in diesel for the first time. 2019 2020 Honda CR-V is now available with 1.6L i-DTEC 4-cyl diesel motor producing 160 hp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm at 2000 rpm. It is paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox and can be had with an AWD system as an option. The petrol CR-V comes with either the 1.5L VTEC Turbo or the 2.4-liter DOHC, direct-injected, naturally aspirated i-VTEC engine, both paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Thai CR-v is a traditional gear selector for the CVT; instead it gets an Acura NSX-inspired selector with buttons for P, R, N and D. Honda Thailand has also confirmed that the CR-V will, for the first time, offer the option of diesel power from a 1.6L i-DTEC unit paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which produces 160 hp at 4,000 rpm and 350 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm.
